Washington Post Climate 2021 | December 9, 2021
CEBN’s letter calling on Congress to enact robust investments in Build Back Better received coverage from the Washington Post. This campaign has attracted coverage of national news outlets. On December 9, 2021, it was featured in the Climate 202 newsletter with the following excerpt from Maxine Joselow:
“Meanwhile, more than 700 leaders in the clean energy industry wrote to Senate leadership today, urging them to support “smart investments” in clean energy and energy efficiency, according to a letter shared exclusively with The Climate 202.
In particular, the letter calls on Congress to create good-paying manufacturing and construction jobs in the clean energy sector as the country recovers from the coronavirus pandemic.
“Hundreds of thousands of clean energy jobs are at stake,” the letter says. “Our nation’s workers, and our climate, cannot afford the cost of inaction.”
The leaders signing the missive included Lynn Abramson, president of the Clean Energy Business Network, and Lisa Jacobson, president of the Business Council for Sustainable Energy.”
